–Eagles star praises French legend Herny in MLS win
Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins has labelled Thierry Henry “a star” after the MLS All Stars defeated European Champions 2-1 in Portland Thursaday morning.
The 29 year old forward led the MLS attack in the encounter in the first half before being replaced by Wright-Phillips at the intervals admitted the French man showed excellent interplay and understanding for a team that had worked together only for three days.
“Even when he doesn’t run, he knows where to put the ball,” Obafemi Martins put it afterward.
Poland striker Lewandowski gave Bayern the lead in the eighth minute as his piledriver from the edge of the area left MLS goalkeeper Nick Rimando with no chance.
Substitute Bradley Wright-Phillips, who joined New York Red Bulls from Charlton in 2013, drew the MLS All Stars level early in the second half.
The former Manchester City and Southampton forward latched onto a through ball and smashed a left-foot shot past Tom Starke into the top corner in the 51st minute.
Donovan then made his mark on the game, snatching victory for the MLS All Stars with a deft finish past Neuer in the 70th minute.
